The best shopping in San Diego runs the gamut from delightful gift boutiques in North Park to one-of-a-kind fashion haunts in the Gaslamp Quarter. And people from all over the country come here for surf-inspired clothing at Hansen’s and Encinitas Surfboards. When it comes to fashion in San Diego, casual attire reigns supreme. The Pink Lagoon on Cedros Avenue, a charming shopping street in Solana Beach, will have everything you need, from a little black dress to a basic T-shirt. If you’re looking for something a little more upscale, Dolcetti Boutique in the Gaslamp Quarter has a fantastic collection of designer clothes and accessories for both men and women—and a hair salon upstairs.
